3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a bad beer at all. A very thin beer with moderate complexity. Smooth, hints of sweet and chocolate, with a low ABV, so you can drink a lot of it.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at GTMW 2015
Good milds are far and few between in the United States it seems so when I noticed this on the list of pours I made a note to give it a shot. Overall it comes close to the spirit of the way things are currently done in the UK but adds a little New World. As a result it feels like a nice experiment to try once.
Aroma / Appearance - Bronze liquid fills the glass to the pour line with a fluid body. Caramel chews and fruit lift upwards with ease along with malt balls.
Flavor / Palate - Strawberries, caramel, and malt bloom into a light transition that tickles the floor of the mouth before a gentle finish. It doesn’t have the same robustness as the best milds. Instead it goes for the "mild means simple" end of the spectrum. I’d love to give it another shot on cask as I think it might give it the oomph it lacks otherwise.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the STL Hops 7th Anniversary Party - Pours clear caramel colored with an off-white head. The aroma has bread, dry caramel, brown sugar, graham crackers and English mild yeast. It has a medium crisp body with soft carbonation. The flavor starts like the aroma, but more toast and some spritziness. Very clean and nice. Really liked this one a lot.
